  • Lovely spacious museum, so much interesting stuff. The overhead railway display is brilliant, and the display of the old plan for the catholic cathedral is really well done. Cafe lovely too!!

  • We have visited a couple of times but the photos are from our visit to the John Lennon Exhibition. An expensive visit but the museum is a lovely, calm & tranquil space to spend some time... As well...

  • This modern museum is well worth a visit. The exhibition spaces are light and airy and display cases carefully arranged and informative. There is a wealth of detail on the city starting from prehistoric times right up to present day. Allow about 2 hours for a visit with children. Interactive screens etc are dotted throughout the museum but sadly several were not working on our visit. There is little to keep really young children engaged. There is a good value cafe and lots of toilets available.
  • Overall a solid museum and especially with it being free! Excellent exhibits all around although too many kids for me ha! My caveat is the poor directions to get around exhibits. Case in point: entering the 1st floor one faces the Viking history section… and yet the earliest ancestors history is to the left of that. Why are there no signs indicating to start to the left?? It was like this all over many of the larger exhibit halls.
